The Adventures of a Happy Homosexual

by Terry Sanderson - £8.99  FeedARead.com (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786102331 | ISBN 10: 1786102331

In this funny, warm and touching book Terry Sanderson reveals how he – the most unwilling and unlikely of activists - honed his skills as a campaigner at the very beginning of the struggle for gay rights in Britain. But this is more than just the story of an amazing social revolution, it’s an absorbing tale that will take you to a time when coming out of the closet was a radical act with potentially dire consequences and when fear and prejudice were the daily lot of gay people.
 
From the author of the best-selling self-help manual How to be a Happy Homosexual comes this eye-opening and deeply personal memoir which is as much a love story as it is a recounting of a complete transformation in our society’s approach to homosexuality.

"This wonderful memoir by veteran LGBT campaigner Terry Sanderson offers a vivid personal snapshot of gay life in Britain over the last four decades; told by someone who was an eye-witness to our many advances and to several of our setbacks. From gay activist to agony aunt, media monitor and secular campaigner, Terry has seen, done and now written about it all. Bravo!"
(Peter Tatchell.)
